They should focus on that battle and let some other things go.
By other things, I mean Sonia Sotomayor, Cash for Clunkers and Bill Clinton’s rescue of the American journalists in North Korea.
Sotomayor was going to get in as soon as she was picked. She had plenty of experience, impeccable academic credentials and an inspiring life story. It doesn’t hurt that she is Hispanic — or a wise Latina, as she might call herself. Conservative groups hoped to derail her on issues like gun control and affirmative action. But she skillfully batted aside any efforts to pin her down, and going after her any further is a big waste of time. Republicans get more credibility for taking on the next Obama nominee by voting for this one. Let her go.
